Phoenix Aeroclub and Flying School was established in 1977 and is located at Camden Airport near Sydney, in NSW Australia. Phoenix Aero Club (PAC) owns and operates Phoenix Flying School (incorporating Liverpool Flying School) which is approved by CASA under CASR Part 141. Phoenix Flying School offers professional flight training to Recreational Pilot Licence, Private Pilot Licence & Commercial Pilot Licence level and Night VFR. All flight training is tailored to fit in with students schedule.

Phoenix Flying School is a small, select team of very experienced CASA-approved professionals who are focussed on helping the student to become a safe and competent pilot. Phoenix Flying School operates a fleet of aircraft consisting of a Beechcraft 77 Skipper, a Piper Warrior and a Cessna 172N. Other aircraft may be available for cross-hire. The Skipper is an ideal aircraft for ab-initio training. The Warrior and Cessna are excellent aircraft for cross-country flying. More advanced flight training can be undertaken in cross-hired aircraft. The Skipper has the same control panel and layout as larger Beechcraft Sundowner, Sierra, and Duchess, allowing students to progress to these more complex aircraft with ease and in the shortest possible time. Phoenix Aero Club members receive a discount on aircraft hire.

Phoenix Flying School is a Not-for-Profit club and will aim to keep the flying costs as low as possible.
